You already have a mindset. Now, it’s time to act on it. Don’t let vicissitudes drag you down. Don’t let the failures of others trigger your fear. A dream is just a dream, and it may remain so forever if you don’t take the steps necessary to turn it into a reality. Don’t be afraid of setbacks. They are the unavoidable mishaps on the road to success. Life is an everlasting struggle. Each detour requires further—unexpected—work of which you could use for professional empowerment. Don’t get off track by doing things to please everyone but yourself. It is okay to learn from others’ failures and successes, but it is more important to first and foremost believe in yourself. –Ardain Isma, educator and author!
